MVP Buyback FAQs

  • What cards will be eligible for the MVP buyback offer?
    • Major League Baseball will announce the American League and National League MVPs in November 2024. After that happens, the 2024 Topps Chrome base cards of those two players, along with the base alternative, refractor, and certain numbered parallel cards, will be eligible for the buyback program. For a full list of the eligible cards, and the specific products/SKUs where those cards appear, see the table above.
  • If the MVPs haven’t been decided yet, what cards should I be collecting now? How do I know what to collect?
    • That’s the exciting part! Starting today, you should start collecting players you think could win the MVP. When you open a box of 2024 Topps Chrome, be sure to collect any player you think might win the award. If they do, you’ll have the option to exchange those cards for store credit starting in November. And if they don’t win the award…well, you’ll still have an awesome card collection.
  • When will the buyback program start?
    • The 2024 MVP Buyback Program will begin shortly after MLB announces the 2024 MVPs in November. Shops should not accept MVP buyback trade-ins prior to the official program start date. This page will update with more details once the MVPs are announced.
  • When does the buyback program end?
    • The 2024 MVP Buyback Program ends on January 30, 2025.
  • Does the buyback offer only apply to 2024 Topps Chrome cards?
    • The MVP Buyback Offer only applies to 2024 Topps Chrome and Topps Chrome Logofractor products. Other 2024 Chrome cards (e.g., Cosmic Chrome and Chrome Sapphire) will not be eligible for buyback.
  • Will any other players’ cards be eligible for the buyback program?
    • No. Only select cards for the 2024 American League MVP and National League MVP will be eligible for buyback.
  • What will I receive in exchange for my cards? Can I get cash?
    • When you bring your cards into your hobby shop, you will receive store credit in exchange – not cash. The amount of store credit is determined by the pricing table above.
  • How do I determine the buyback value of my numbered cards?
    • It’s very simple. All MVP cards that are numbered greater than /100 will fetch $100 in credit. All numbered cards less than /100 will fetch $200 in credit. Thus, for /399, /350, /299, /275, /250, /199, /150 or /125 cards the buyback offer is $100. For /99, /75, /50, /25, /5, /-5 or /1 cards, the buyback offer is $200.
  • Can I redeem my cards if I don’t live near a participating hobby shop?
    • Yes, you can. Topps has partnered with three authorized mail-in partners who will be accepting mailed-in eligible MVP Buyback cards for in-store or online credit. More details to come once the program begins.
  • I run a hobby shop and want to participate – how can I?
    • If you are a hobby shop in the US or Canada and would like to become a Topps Ceritified Buyback Shop, please reach out to for more information.
  • Is there a limit to the number of cards I can redeem for store credit?
    • While there isn’t an official limit, each hobby shop will have the discretion to cap the number of cards they buy back.
  • Do the cards have to be in mint condition?
    • Cards do not need to be in mint condition. Ripped or altered cards will not be accepted for the buyback program, but as long as your card is in one piece, it will be eligible.
  • What happened to the 2023 MVP cards that were bought back last time?
    • A small number of cards that were bought back under the 2023 Topps Chrome MVP Buyback Program have been stamped and reinserted into the 2024 Topps Chrome product, and some have been signed by the 2023 MVPs.
  • Do I have to make a purchase to participate in the buyback program?
